    I stayed in a 4 bed women's dorm. Based on the reviews, I expected a clean, calm and independent environment, and this was exactly what I got. Very close to train station. Easy walking distance to furnicular and Bryggen. Extra large locker provided for each roommate with key. Outlet in center of room with multiple sockets. Not really a social atmosphere but sometimes that's better after a long day of travel!

    It’s a nice hostel in a great location, right in the center of Bergen, walking distance to pretty everything you want to see. Staff is helpful and lovely, room was clean. Don’t think the bathroom in the 10 bed dorm was cleaned every day though, and the kitchen was kind of ok, kind of not? Sure, we could cook our food there, but e.g. there was only one pot that could be used to cook pasta for more than one person which was kind of annoying tbh. Still good value for money, especially in Norway!

    This is a very popular hostel so for a social aspect, you'll probably run into many people here. It's a bit cramped inside with narrow maze-like hallways. I stayed in a 10-dorm room which was also a bit cramped but did the trick. The lockers aren't huge so many people leave their stuff out in the open if security is an issue for you. Bathrooms and showers were average, I still wore shower flip flops. Location is great and the staff were very helpful!
